About Brasserie Dupont
In 1920, Louis Dupont, an agrologist, considered the acquisition of a farm in Canada. To dissuade him, his father Alfred Dupont bought him the brewery Rimaux-Deridder dating from 1759. This farm brewery was famous for its beer Season and honey beer. In 1945, Louis Dupont having no children, the Brasserie Dupont was bequeathed to his nephew Sylva Rosier, Engineer Brewer. Sylva Rosier worked with her son Marc, head of the Brasserie Dupont from 1964 to 2002, and with his daughter Claude, with whom he developed the ROLA office, a laboratory for brewing and malting. Today, it is always the children and grandchildren of Sylva Rosier who own the Brasserie Dupont. A grandson of Sylva Rosier, Olivier Dedeycker joined the Brasserie Dupont as a Brasseur Engineer in 1990. Since 2002, Olivier Dedeycker has succeeded his uncle Marc Rosier as head of the family brewery and is therefore the fourth generation of this family of brewers. Our sales have remained very local for a very long time, producing around 4,000 hl until 1986, the year of beer in Belgium, which allowed many consumers to discover our products. From 1986 to 1993, the volume of sales increased from 4,000 to 5,000 hl. The regular export of our beers really began in 1992 and our production reached more than 7,000 hl in 2002. Since 2003, production has evolved significantly and reached 20,000hl in 2014. Today, the share of exports represents 40% of production. In order to cope with this growth, we regularly invest in additional production equipment and in the extension of production premises, with the aim of exploiting the tool optimally while maintaining traditional manufacturing processes.
